On debian and derivatives (so Ubuntu) you need to install python-pip to
be able to use pip.

Now it's annoying already. Because you have to write every tutorial to
include a special case for them. But at least it's not a required step
to run your program.

However, if you do code using type hints and typing is not installed,
you can't even run the program without installing something. So we
finally have Python 3 by default on most Linux system, but still would
not be able to assume we can run a modern script on it.
